Using old ISP details


[link to this post]
 
How long once you migrate should your old login details be removed? Out of curiosity i just checked and i can still access the net using my old ISPs login. It migrated over on Thurs. Seems odd

Depends on who your new ISP is as some of them don't care what ID or password you use.

Ah right always thought who you can and cant connect to was something that was decided at the exchange or some authentication server before it hit the isp

Would think the old isp would care seeing as im using their bandwidth if i use my old login. My account with old isp been closed too yet can still connect

Easiest way to find out is to find the IP address and see if it coems up as your old or new ISP.

You wont be connecting to your old ISP.

You new ISP will probably authenticate via phone number or some such, rathe than username/password.

An easy (though not fool proof) way to tell is to check your external IP address.

Go to google and type Whats my IP, then check the IP you see against the RIPE database.

Are you sure you're using their bandwidth? You're probably using your new ISP regardless of the login used.

When connected with the old ISP's username, does the information from the "Learn about yourself" link on here http://centralops.net/co/ tally up to the new or old ISP?

Both his old and new connections are via TTB LLU, so his IP may be simply TalkTalk. Unless the ISPs were just using TT tails, which I doubt.

If i connect using my old details i have my old static IP which is owned by adsl24/coms.

Traceroute shows Enta when logged into old settings (old isp used) instead of talk talk (which my new isp use as there suppliers)

Coms (ex adsl24) are useless though so maybe not deleted me off the system?
